Looking for high quality "Maine" lobsters for weekend party. Any recs?
Also, where to find spiny lobsters?

    1. My mom now buys her lobsters from a place in South San Francisco. They charge more than the Asian supermarkets, but is of much higher quality.

      I believe this is the place

      390 Swift Ave, S San Francisco, CA - (650) 742-6626‎

      Call ahead before you drive over there though.

      1. Thank you for your suggestions.

        My favorite source -- Cook's Seafood, in Menlo Park. And now I know about other resources for the future.

        Again, thanks

        1. I don't know if Old Port Lobster Shack will sell you lobsters - they are definitely from Maine though... they are in RWC.
